McMaster Hosts Conference on Colombian Peace Process

After half a century of violent conflict, Colombia is in the midst of implementing an historic peace agreement aimed at achieving truth, justice and reconciliation.

What have been the successes and challenges of this process? And what are the lessons for Canada?

Nicolas Lloreda, Ambassador of Colombia to Canada and Justice Danilo Rojas, former Chief Justice of Colombia’s highest court recently took part in a public event co-sponsored by Peter Mascher, McMaster’s Associate Vice-President, International, that explored these questions and more.

The event was part of The Colombian Peace Process with FARC: Achievements, Failures and Challenges, a two-day conference hosted by Nancy Doubleday, McMaster’s HOPE Chair for Peace and Health, in cooperation with Bertrand Russell Research Centre.
